When a couple in Georgia goes through a divorce involving minor children, child custody and support issues can become the most important parts of the case. These issues address not only the relationship that is being ended in the divorce, but also the relationships between the parents and children going forward – potentially for years to come. Making post-divorce life easier for the children is oftentimes a top priority.
A recent news article included a few tips for those who are attempting to make a smooth transition to post-divorce life possible for their children, and for themselves. For example, the article mentioned that it can be helpful to stick to fairly regular schedules, such as for pickup and drop-off times between the two parents. If necessary, a neutral site could be selected for the kids to transition from one parent to the other.
Avoiding disputes about child custody and child support in post-divorce life isn’t always possible, but with the right approach the now-divorced ex-spouses can work together to try to make the transition to a new type of life work for all involved. Emotions can get involved in these issues, but focusing on the needs of the children can help divorced parents see what is right.
Solving child custody problems
As the recent news article mentioned, it can help when the children of divorced parents know what to expect. But, for the parents, knowing what to expect from each other in post-divorce life isn’t always possible. When child custody problems arise, solutions need to be found. At our law firm, we work with Georgia residents who are facing these issues to attempt to explore all available options.
